Rooms are very spacious, especially the loft ones with high ceilings. The hotel is well built, beds are comfortable, and the staff is excellent. The location is ideal: far enough from the main road that you don't get bothered by the noise, yet close enough that you can walk to the beach, even if you carry a surfboard, as long as you are reasonably fit: it is a steep and rugged terrain (I find it fun). We particularly appreciated the "quiet after 9pm" policy which is a great plus compared to many hotels in Santa Teresa and Playa Carmen that cater to the party crowd. We were here to relax in a peaceful atmosphere and Canaima Chill House was the perfect getaway for that. It's one of those few places that are better for real than on the photos. Although the slogan includes the word "rustic", the hotel offers full comfort and is very well built. It doesn't have AC but the location on a hill offers natural cooling, complemented by ceiling fans inside the mosquito nets. We stayed 9 days and didn't miss AC once. The staff at Canaima is extremely helpful and goes way beyond the normal call of duty to make sure you have a great experience. Oh, and did I mention that you see plenty of wildlife in the trees surrounding the hotel, including monkeys, birds, iguanas and squirrels? Sometimes the wildlife wakes you up a bit earlier than you'd like... but hey, it's jungle... and if you want to make the best of your stay in Costa Rica you will rise early anyway! I highly recommend Canaima Chill House to any traveler looking for a peaceful, relaxed and beautiful place to stay in Santa Teresa.

... picked up enough to put a bit of a bump on the waves. My neck and shoulders were quite sore from all the paddling over the last couple of days, so when I stopped to get my flipflops, I asked Jobbie for recommendations for a massage. Teresa from Canada was a friend of his and came highly recommended. Veronique made the call and set me up with an appointment for the afternoon. Teresa is ...

Both my guidebook and the college volunteer said to try to arrive as early as possible to get the tickets for the following day. Well, it was just us and a French guy... who was planning on getting a ticket for today! He had no problem getting it... the visitor ...
... to function or as I would call it “being in a food coma”. We decided to call it a night and catch up on our sleep as us guys were going surfing in the morning.
Monday morning I met up with Joaco and Jonathan so we could load up our surf boards on the quad and surf early morning when the water is the calmest. Before going out we patched my board up with duct tape so the cracks wouldn’t get any worse. We ended up surfing from 7:30am to about 10:30am. ...
I came back from the beach, and the heat had calmed down. The porch was more than pleasant. I felt sure that I would soon love my casita. I went to Capoeira that evening. Turns out it was just a two minute walk down the beach, in a gorgeous ocean-front, open-air yoga studio. Great location! Came home, hung out on my porch, chatted with my sister online, and then was ready to collapse into bed... to finally sleep after two days!! I was so exhausted ...
Santiago(Panama) to San Isidro de El General (Costa Rica)
Today it was up bright and early, pack the bikes and off towards the border for Costa Rica. John, Andy, Allan, Scott and myself decided to get going early and get to the border before all the crowds begin. We even decided not to have breakfast as that only started at 7.
It was slightly overcast but as soon as the sun came up the temp began to rise and we started to cook. It was ...
